Methods That Do Not Introduce Moisture into Your Carol Stream Home

Mold contamination necessitates a thorough cleanup of the affected areas or the entire home. The cleanup should remove masses of mold colonies, restore stained surfaces and address the musty odor associated with such contamination. Since there are different possible cleaning approaches, choosing one for your Carol Stream home might challenge you.

Deciding which mold damage cleanup approach your Carol Stream home requires can be easy or challenging, depending on the system you use or the level of experience you have dealing with mold. A good approach should consider the turnaround time, the inconvenience levels for the occupants, and the likelihood of rapid recurrence. SERVPRO is well-versed in different cleaning options and mostly combines several methods to deliver satisfactory outcomes.

Some useful mold cleanup techniques include:

  • HEPA vacuuming
  • Sanding or wire brushing
  • Soda blasting
  • Dry ice blasting

Inspecting the property before starting cleaning is essential to determine the level of contamination. Mold starts as a light residue on surfaces, but its root-like hyphae penetrate below the surface over time, embedding soiling or causing significant deterioration. It is easy to wipe off the contaminated surfaces and leave them clean in the early stages. Deeply embedded infestations, on the other hand, require significant cleaning power.

Another essential step when cleaning mold is opening up concealed areas since cleaning procedures require direct contact with the contaminated surfaces. Our SERVPRO technicians help remove drywall, ceiling panels, or carpets to reach the moldy areas.

After preparing the affected areas, various cleaning methods can remove moldy materials. HEPA vacuuming is essential in the early stages to strip away loose debris or settled spores. Sanding and wire brushing help when there is significant contamination on semi-porous surfaces like wood or stone. Blast cleaning with soda or dry ice is a great option for various applications, including cleaning vast areas and finished or unfinished surfaces.
